Hi, i am KAKA, a composer and producer who make song and music. Piano and guitar are my main instruments. Composing ambient music and band sound music is what i am good at but I am also willing to try compose other form of music, try to explore more music as much as i can.

**Bio** Leigh Collins is a guitarist and composer based on the Mornington Peninsula outside of Melbourne, Australia. His music is characterised by his thoughtful approach to melody and harmony, portrayed through a refined touch on the instrument that reflects his love of classic electric guitar tones. Leigh’s dedication to the instrument has seen him achieve a Masters of Music from The University of Melbourne. In 2018, Leigh had the opportunity to perform at the Melbourne International Jazz Festival as a member of contemporary jazz ensemble “Prickly Pear”. In September 2019, Leigh released his debut album, “Here’s Why”, recorded live at Sing Sing East alongside Lawson Kennard (bass) and Daniel McKoy (drums). The album consists of original instrumental compositions drawing inspiration from jazz harmony and folk melodies, underpinned by blues articulations and phrasing. Leigh currently works for Pickup Music, where he transcribes music. **Qualifications and Education** Master of Music (Performance Teaching) - University of Melbourne Master of Teaching (Secondary) - ACU Bachelor of Applied Music (Performance) - BHI **Music Services** Composing and recording Soundtracks Ambient Soundtracks Session Guitar Transcribing Arranging Performing

Xai is a Melbourne Creative Artist who's passion is to perfectly express the emotion and mood of a works, through her lyrical, vocal, composition and production and video editing skills. Her genre influences include Melancholy/Grunge/Trap/Pop/Score. Her first stint at video editing was for her Write It On A Wall (MegaFlex n Akiddo Remi). After realising the endless opportunities for creating and expressing mood and emotion through the editing of a video, Xai added video editing to the list of her creative passions. The audio for her latest single, Fall feat. Brian O'Mahoney was recorded by Xai in one-take and the music video also filmed by Xai using her iPhone X, had both scenes which she features in, filmed in just one take to capture that same rawness of the audio. The video too was edited by Xai and is her second and proudest video creative project to date.

I have been recording and writing my own songs since the late 1980's, starting with a Tascam 4-Track cassette deck, then later moving on to computer recording set-ups! I use keyboards, synthesizers, guitars, stringed instruments, percussion instruments and anything I can lay my hands on!

Melbourne based Malphemist (Brendan Armstrong) is not your classic composer. He was not brought up in a musical household. There were no treasure troves of amazing vinyls to explore. Bryan Adams was considered the pinnacle of artistry. No really. Yeah I'm sorry too. *Ahem* He started life as a professional computer nerd, developing software for the automation of audio/visual systems for establishments such as the Arts Centre and Melbourne Museum. After a decade of that (along with a few detours into the realms massage therapy, architecture, event management, entheogenics and pornography) he decided the only option left was to take his hobby of DJing to the next logical step of music production. Despite a year of training at the Australian Institute of Music, he has so far proven incapable of playing an instrument, singing in tune or even distinguishing between a major and a minor chord. Sheet music brings on a cold sweat. Never one to let a complete lack of talent stand in his way, he found refuge from the tyranny of tonality in the worlds of electronic music and sound composition. Freed from the pesky inconveniences of physical instruments, notation and human performers he crafts dark, experimental soundscapes and underground electronic dance music (don't call it EDM unless you fancy a lengthy rant on the crime against humanity that is the crass commercialisation of art). He looks to high technologies for inspiration and innovation, taking every opportunity to surpass the limits of human abilities. He sees his role as that of 'meta­composer', crafting rules and algorithms that generate the composition itself. The music of the future cannot be composed by mere humans. He continues to DJ techno and drum'n'bass weaving his signature dark, broody, tribal atmospheres at local festivals such as Rainbow Serpent Festival, Earthcore and Samsara. His sets are more than random assortments of tracks, they are carefully crafted journeys through alternate realities. He invites you to lose yourself in his mystical worlds of darkness, mystery, intrigue and wonder.

She was the winner of the Artology Fanfare Competition in Sydney (2017) and Queensland (2020), placed first and runners up in the Australian Music Foundation’s Annual Songwriting Challenge (2017 and 2019) and was awarded Best Massed Choir Conductor at St Leonard’s College’s Annual House Music Competition (2019). She has collaborated with and been mentored by established Australian musicians such as Elizabeth Drake, Harriett Allcroft, Johannes Luebbers and Toshi Clinch. Ayda is based in Melbourne, Australia and is studying a Bachelor of Music, specialising in Composition and Music Technology and a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Psychology, at Monash University. She is currently working on various projects, including composing the soundtrack for the upcoming audiobook, Brayden’s Tale, produced in the US. Her work is presently focused on the development of her creative voice and vision and learning how to interweave her own culture into her sound.

After deciding on a type of composer, it’s time to start the hiring process:

Finding A Composer For Hire

Finding a freelance composer can seem daunting..

We’ve simplified the process.

Here’s a quick overview of how to hire a music composer on Twine:

  1. Post up a job
  2. Wait for freelance music composers to pitch on your project
  3. Review your pitches and choose a freelancer
  4. Negotiate your terms
  5. Done!
Tips For Writing Your Job Brief

Here’s a statistic for you:

75% of the pitches for jobs online are from freelancers who are not qualified to do the work

But why?

Because the brief doesn't clearly explain what the client needs, so freelancers pitch in hoping that the project might match their skills.

On Twine, we manually vet all the pitches that a client receives to save them from spending hours filtering out unqualified freelancers.

However, it’s still really important to make your project brief stand out by keeping it simple, yet detailed

Clear and concise job briefs allow freelance composers to quickly scan your requirements and determine if they’re a good fit for your project before getting in touch.

When pitching to composers online, make sure to include the following information in your job brief:

  • Who you are
  • What you need (and why)
  • The size of your project
  • Your vision for the project
  • Examples of styles you like
  • Target audience
  • Budget
  • Deadline
How Much Does It Cost To Hire A Composer in Melbourne, AU?

Composer rates vary significantly from project-to-project. For example, the cost to hire a game music composer for a full-length score may be significantly more expensive than the cost to hire a composer for a trailer.

When negotiating rates, you’ll be sent a quote by the composer based on the length of time the composition will take to produce.

Using the data from our platform, here are the ranges you can expect for a day’s work from a freelance music composer (7-8 hours):

Composer LevelJuniorMid-LevelExpert
Day Rate$150-250$250-350$350-500

Frequently Asked Questions
Why hire a composer?

Here's the deal

Stock music can be sniffed out a mile away.

And the worst part?

Stock music comes off as lazy, stale and impersonal.

Commissioning a vibrant and original soundtrack for your project will show your audience you mean business from the get-go.

Still not convinced?

Here are three other benefits of hiring a freelance composer over buying stock music:

Creative Control

Stock music forces you to try and make your project fit the soundtrack. Hiring a composer allows you to put your project first and fit the soundtrack to the project.


Looking to create more than one piece of music? Working with a composer ensures consistency across not only your soundtrack, but your wider branding.

Price Point

High-quality stock music can be expensive, with most services locking you into a monthly subscription. Hiring a freelance composer allows you to pay for original, fit-for-purpose music as and when you require it.

How can music benefit my business?

Here’s another statistic:

24% of consumers are more-likely to buy a product when music they like is being played.

If you aren’t already using music as a core aspect of your branding, you should be!

But why is music such a powerful sales tool?

Here are the three main advantages that an original piece of music can bring to your business:

Speak your customers’ language

Align yourself with your customer base by using music that represents their values, interests and personalities.

Stand out from the competition

Be a business that people remember. An original earworm will set you apart from those forgettable royalty-free soundtracks your competitors are using.

Improve Customer Experience

Create an atmosphere your customers love through the music you use.

What’s the difference between a composer and a producer?

Great question:

Composers write & arrange original music. They usually work with clients who require a soundtrack for a visual medium, such as a commercial, film, explainer video or theater production.

Producers serve as project managers for the recording process. They work directly with both composers and musical artists to navigate the recording and ensure the end result is as good as it can be. While producers often work on soundtracks for visual mediums, they more-commonly work on commercial recorded music.

But what if you need both?

Luckily, many freelance composers double as highly-skilled producers and can handle both stages of the process. These freelancers will market themselves as a ‘composer/producer’.

If you require a freelancer who can handle both composition and production, make sure to mention this in your job description.

What are you waiting for?

Post a job on Twine now and be matched with a wide range of high quality composers for hire in a matter of hours.
